p.2 Whitefish - The trade in this article is becoming one of great importance to the county of Prince Edward. About 15,000 barrels are annually taken on the lake shore in the neighborhood of Wellington, and this year the catch has been larger than any previous one, and the prices obtained have also been in advance of former years. The prices hitherto have rarely risen above 15s. but a demand has sprung up in the adjoining State, and now 22s. 6d. to 23s. 9d. per barrel are readily paid on the beach. One merchant from Consecon writes us that he has already disposed of 1500 bbls., a part of which has realized 25s. 3d. delivered.

Yesterday presented a decidedly wintry appearance; snow fell to the depth of about an inch, and has the appearance of remaining. Some of the steamers continue their usual trips, but not with much regularity.
